Winslet Pregnant

British actress KATE WINSLET is pregnant with her second child, her first with new husband SAM MENDES.

The TITANIC star, who has a two-and-a-half-year-old daughter MIA from her first marriage to JIM THREAPLETON, yesterday (24JUL03) revealed she'll be a mum again in the new year (04).

The couple, who married in secret in the Caribbean in May (03), are said to be "euphoric" at the news.

A spokesperson for the pair, currently holidaying in Tuscany, Italy, says, "They are absolutely delighted. Kate and Sam have been desperate to have a child together."

News of the pregnancy has remained a well-kept secret for weeks, although Winslet didn't discover she was expecting a baby until after the wedding.

The couple now plan to put work on hold as they prepare for the new addition to their family - Winslet has begun turning down job offers and Mendes has taken a break from work behind the camera and theatre work until at least the end of the year.

A friend says, "They're over the moon. They had a very busy six months of the year and now they feel they've earned the right to relax with their families."
